It has been a stunner of a day so far here in Zao. Lovely clear blue skies all around. Amazing contrast with the white of the snow. A lot of tourists up top today too! More than a few of them will be finding themselves rather burnt this evening I think. Protection required!

It was a cold start and about -5C but warming up as we enter the afternoon. Into positive numbers.

We might get a spot or two of rain overnight but other than that clear conditions forecast for both tomorrow and Sunday. Possibly strong winds too.

Remember that festival that I mentioned a few days back.... tomorrow night!
